ABC is happy with the performance of Chris Lilley’s new comedy series Angry Boys despite its ratings not being quite as hot as expected.
The comedy concluded on Wednesday night with an audience of 612,000 viewers, well down from the 1.37m audience that tuned in for the May 11 premiere.
‘We are extremely proud of the series, which has truly resonated with a new audience for the network,” Brendan Dahill, controller of ABC1, said yesterday. ”Angry Boys has been one of the programming highlights for ABC1, as it has successfully attracted much younger viewers, with 55 per cent of its audience being 39 years and under.”
ABC says that 2.4 million viewers have watched the series on the network’s online catch-up website.
